Jersey City’s Starling celebrates initial occupancy underway in luxury apartments

Development partners Alpine Residential and Fields Grade are celebrating a significant milestone at Starling, the boutique collection of 39 luxury apartments in Jersey City’s resurgent Bergen-Lafayette.

Occupancy is underway at the six-story building, which is now home to renters enjoying a high-end apartment lifestyle that blends modern residences, a package of inspired amenities and convenient location at 66 Monitor St., steps from Liberty State Park and a short trip to downtown Jersey City and Manhattan.

Starling features a mix of studio to three-bedroom homes and apartments, priced from $2,595, and offered with limited-time incentives that include up to two months free. South Oxford Management, an affiliated company of Alpine Residential, is handling its leasing program and management.

“We are proud to welcome our first residents to Starling,” Todd Schefler, managing partner of Alpine Residential, said. “Our initial move-ins have truly brought this beautiful building to life. The early feedback has been overwhelmingly positive as residents embrace boutique living in a lively neighborhood that’s quickly filling up with delectable food and dining options, quaint cafes, nightlife and community services and amenities.”

With architecture by GRT Architects, Starling artfully fuses modern aesthetics with historic charm, paying homage to its past through the careful preservation of a century-old building’s façade that once adorned the site. The exterior is joined inside by a double-height lobby that features reclaimed trusses and wood finishes salvaged from its original structure. These elements were also repurposed to craft furniture found throughout the property’s common spaces.

Residences at Starling feature oversized windows with complimentary treatments, luxury plank flooring throughout, custom modular closets, in-home washer and dryer, smart lock entry and remote thermostats. Gourmet kitchens boast stainless steel Energy Star appliances, Quartz countertops with a waterfall edge, Kohler fixtures, under-cabinet lighting and full-height tiled back splashes. Sleek bathrooms are adorned with Kohler fixtures, full height tiled baths and showers and soft close cabinetry. Select homes offer outdoor terraces.

Starling’s suite of amenities include a rooftop lounge, outdoor dining and seating area, state-of-the-art fitness center, coworking spaces and a golf simulator. Services encompass a virtual doorman, package room, bike storage, access to electric scooters and Tulu, an on-demand smart rental store offering high-quality household and lifestyle products.

Throughout Starling, a carefully curated collection of artwork captures the essence of Jersey City’s vibrant art scene. From murals by world-renowned artists to the diverse architecture and neighborhood life, the collection celebrates the city’s creativity. Upon entering the building, residents and guests are welcomed by works showcasing Jersey City’s street art scene, a theme that continues throughout amenities spaces adorned with local art and stocked with books from local authors, providing a connection to the Jersey City art community.

Street-level retail spaces at Starling will soon be filled by MochiDough/BoberTea, a premium Japanese donut and bubble tea shop, and the Roxy, a new venture from some of the team behind Corto in Jersey City Heights.
